Filming has officially begun in Los Angeles on the long-awaited sequel “Freaky Friday 2” at Disney Pictures.

Oscar winner Jamie Lee Curtis and her former co-star Lindsay Lohan appear in the first official photo from the body swap comedy which has just been released via Disney’s social media channels.

This sequel to the 2003 film boasts a multigenerational twist. Set years after Tess (Curtis) and Anna (Lohan) endured an identity crisis, Anna now has a daughter of her own and a soon-to-be stepdaughter.

As they navigate the myriad challenges that come when two families merge, Tess and Anna discover that lightning might indeed strike twice. The original, itself a remake of the 1976 film starring Jodie Foster in the Lohan role, grossed $160 million worldwide.

Also returning from the 2003 movie are Mark Harmon as Ryan, Chad Michael Murray as Jake, Christina Vidal Mitchell as Maddie, Haley Hudson as Peg, Rosalind Chao as Pei-Pei, Lucille Song as Pei-Pei’s mom, and Stephen Tobolowsky as Mr. Bates.

Joining them are Manny Jacinto, Julia Butters, Sophia Hammons and Maitreyi Ramakrishnan. Jordan Weiss penned the script while Nisha Ganatra (“Late Night,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) directs. Andrew Gunn and Kristin Burr are producing the film which is confirmed to be coming to cinemas in 2025.

The Colemans are back and coming to theaters in 2025! The sequel to Freaky Friday is now in production!
